KICKING GOALS FOR FEMALE PLAYERS AT SPRING GULLY

Friday, 8 September 2017

More women and girls will soon be kicking goals for the Spring Gully United Soccer Club, thanks to its newly upgraded pavilion at Spring Gully Recreation Reserve.  

Member for Bendigo East, Jacinta Allan, officially opened the new facilities at the pavilion today, opening more doors for locals to get active and play the game they love.

We know grassroots clubs are the heart of our community, and we’re giving players and teams at Spring Gully the modern and inclusive facilities they deserve.

Women and girls are signing up in record number to play soccer. But many facilities were built in a bygone era where change rooms for females were poor or didn’t even exist.

The new pavilion features two unisex change rooms with cubicle toilets and showers, a unisex referees’ change room, first aid room, and an accessible toilet.  

It will benefit not just women and girls, but will help the club as a whole manage its growing membership and improve its ability to programme training and games with flexible change rooms.

Ms Allan thanked project partners, the City of Greater Bendigo and Spring Gully United Soccer Club for their contribution and commitment to delivering the development.  

The Andrews Labor Government is getting on with replacing and upgrading ageing grounds and facilities across regional Victoria – so grassroots clubs like the Spring Gully United can grow and welcome more members than ever before.

“Every player deserves equal access to equal facilities, and this revamp will benefit every woman and girl who plays at Spring Gully.”

“Women deserve the same opportunities as men, and with record numbers of women and girls signing up to play, we’re making sure facilities are up to scratch right here in Spring Gully.” 

This upgrade will give the Spring Gully United Soccer Club a real boost to attract new players and keep on top of its rivals.”
